It’s been an extremely tough year for Aussie surfer Mick Fanning and now it’s been confirmed that he and his wife of eight years, Karissa Dalton have decided to go their separate ways.
Fanning narrowly escaped death last year when he survived a shark attack, then lost his brother soon after.
The split was announced on Facebook by Fanning which has shocked many fans and friends alike.
Reports say the couple had briefly broken up before Fanning’s shark encounter and then reunited shortly after.
